I do hope imitation is just sincere flattery, and nothing more.
The snobs and critics will have a field day with the US author’s latest work – but I’m not joining in

This is why we are stupid.

Cut up old books (you weren't thinking of reading them were you?) and turn them into a decorative box so that guests will think you sometimes read.

If you can hear a funny noise in the background, it's just Ray Bradbury spinning in his grave.

Astonishing to see how out of touch politicians can be. Smartphones have been around for about ten years, and have been insanely popular for the last five. There's no excuse for looking at one now and asking "What should we call this?"
 
THIS is how plugged in and tech-aware our leaders are. I have NO words. Oh, one. SMARTPHONE.

Whether eating in the restaurant or as a takeaway, the food is always excellent: good range of dishes, good tasty ingredients and generous portions. Staff are consistently friendly and polite. A little pricey for the area, but worth it. There's also a cheaper self-serve buffet option on Sunday evenings.
